Sticker Swap + Coupon Code

I am no stranger to sticker subscriptions and agenda madness. You see, if I didn’t have an agenda, I wouldn’t remember anything and would basically be lost in this world. And agendas aren’t agendas without sticker flair, amirite? That’s why I was so stoked to check out Sticker Swap. You get new stickers every month, and they feature such a wide variety made by independent artists that they are sure to cater to everyone’s interests.

I mean, what were the chances that I would get a cafetera in my bundle? For those of you not in the know, this little contraption on the bottom right of the photo above is what makes the wondrous black fuel that most Miami mamas live off of: Cuban coffee (i.e., “cafecito”). I need to find the perfect spot for this sticker because it is literally too good to be true.

YouTubin': March Fanmail Box Unboxing

Can you believe I haven’t uploaded a video in TWO months? Life has been crazy, hectic, beautiful and overwhelming. You know…mom life. Working mom life. But I found some time to unbox the most incredible FanMail Box for March and I’m pretty sure you are going to love it as much as I did.

Nerdy Must Haves

You didn’t think I had forgotten about this month’s must haves, did you?
Absolutely NOT.

1. Princess Leia leotards; I’ve already expressed my love for The Daily Threads on this blog often enough, but I just can’t stop raving about one of their newest designs: a tribute to one of the most kick ass princesses in the galaxy. I think it is the perfect outfit for your little one to rock while visiting any of the Disney parks or for a Star Wars themed party. I can’t wait to get one for little Lu.

2. Expelliarmus pennant; I cannot love this little pennant banner anymore. Sure, the pennant trend must be on its way out if the Target dollar spot is housing a bunch (wink nudge), but I’ll be damned if I don’t get one of these for some room of my house (I’ll find any excuse). Best part? It’s currently on sale!

3. Death Star heart pin; As everyone’s pin game continues to rage strong, I am working on compiling the most epic collection for my fandom jacket by the time I am visiting SDCC this year. It’s pretty amazing at the moment, but I feel like it could be so much better. That’s why I’m definitely adding this adorable Star Wars themed pin to it soon!

4. Legion on FX; This show totally sideswiped me, but I am completely and utterly obsessed. The styling, the imagery, the direction: everything is so flawless, it’s almost impossible to believe it is real. After seeing so many Xmen ventures tank, it’s really nice to see one done the way it should. Does anyone else already have a huge cosplay list just from the two first episodes?

 

iRead: American Gods

img_0543

I started reading American Gods almost 2 years ago while traveling for work. I ended up being robbed while on vacation shortly after, and the book bag they took had this little book tucked away in it. It wasn’t until recently that a friend bought me a new copy that I began to read it again. I was newly inspired to pick it up again when I found out they would be making a show out of it on Starz and it was headed by one of my favs, Bryan Fuller.

Needless to say, I was really pumped to get started and wrapped up in one of Gaiman’s worlds, as I have never read any of his work (I know, gasp). Unfortunately, I really can’t say I dug it much. This will be a somewhat spoiler-free review, but if you prefer to go into it completely in the dark, then do not click below.
